The inspiration comes from the flame of the fire as a primary source of the light. The intent of the concept is to be a modern sculptor which creates an aesthetic movement of the flame in the relationship with the surrounding space. The luxury shape was motivated by the existing studies on positive emotional impacts of rounded shapes.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Flame is a new generation lamp. In it laser light sources are build-in that are used more intensively in the industry and are characterized by the light intensity and a minimal use of electricity. This, together with the elegant design is the starting point of the project. The stylized shape provokes a simulated flame effect and creates a sense of comfort and luxury. The materials for the metal and glass body are fully recyclable, which, together with low energy consumption ranks it among the top of the environmental friendly products.
OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The Flame lamp is designed for interior lighting. With its modern design it is a luxury jewel attracting the attention in every interior design, residential or public. Soft and dynamic shapes are used to achieve an impressive result in terms of design and functionality. The colors also complement such effects. The golden color for the metal part that is in a direct connection with the yellow color of the fire and a late blue color in the glass part, which is seen in the hottest part of the tip of the flame. As a result the lamp perfectly combines a luxurious design and an energy efficiency.
PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The design started in August 2015 and finished in January 2016. All design work was done in Sofia, Bulgaria.
FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Lighting Products and Lighting Projects Design
PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The product consists of two main parts. The metal part of the lamp is forming by casting. The glass portion is handcrafted by the artisans (sculptor glazier). At both ends of the lamp there are 2 laser lights that light up laterally. In the lower part adjacent to them there are 2 more laser lights (one in each end) which are located downstream. The glass part covers the lights and serves as a light diffuser.

The research process went off in three directions. The first one was related to innovative light sources. For this purpose laser lights have been chosen because of their powerful lights and laser projection, and minimal energy consumption. The second direction was related to the shape of the lamp. Because the original source of light and a most important discovery of humanity is the fire, it is used as a basic form of this lamp. The third direction is related to the emotional impact of the forms. Based on an extensive research work curved and rounded shapes are applied in Flame.
The challenge in designing this lamp was to combine the functionality and performance with aesthetics and design idea. Furthermore, additional difficulty was to achieve an emotional value of the product, which is based on extremely detailed research.
